The coming week will be very warm in Austria, but also very windy.
According to the experts at Geosphere Austria, several warm fronts will ensure temperatures of up to 15 degrees in the new week. However, it is also likely to rain again and again.
Rain is expected to begin Monday afternoon.
A warm front’s clouds will cross from the west throughout the day on Monday, bringing more dense clouds. Rain will fall later in the afternoon and evening, both in the far west and from the Inn to the Waldviertel. The snow line will be between 1,500 and 2,000 metres above sea level, and there is a local risk of black ice in the cold air layer near the ground. The southeast-west wind will be weak to moderate. Early temperatures will be minus twelve to minus two degrees, with daytime highs of zero to eight degrees.
Tuesday is mostly sunny with brisk winds.
Following a cold front that passes through at night, Tuesday will be a changeable day on the northern edge of the Alps and in the north, with heavier residual clouds, a few showers, and only a little sunshine in between. Showers will be the exception rather than the rule everywhere, with the sun shining more frequently. While it will often be cloudless in the east in the afternoon, fields of cloud from the next warm front will arrive again from the west, and rain will then slowly set in in the far west in the evening. The wind will come from the west and be brisk, even stormy in the mountains. Early temperatures will range from minus seven to plus four degrees, with daytime highs from four to ten degrees, with highs in the west.
Spring-like temperatures on Wednesday
Wednesday: The overnight rain will move away from the east in the morning, and dry and occasionally sunny weather will temporarily set in. In the afternoon, however, a cold front will soon bring dense clouds and rain showers from the northwest, accompanied by strong to stormy westerly winds. The south will remain generally favourable. Early temperatures will reach minus four to plus six degrees, with daytime highs of seven to 15 degrees.
Lower snow line on Thursday
On Thursday, Austria will be caught in a strong north-westerly current. Rain or snow showers will continue into the afternoon on the northern side of the Alps, partly in the north and partly in the east. The snow line will be between 600 and 900 metres, with most areas in the west exceeding 1,000 metres. The sun will only appear here occasionally, with sunny spells becoming longer during the day. It is generally sunny in the south. The wind will be brisk to strong across the board, with some gale-force winds from the west to northwest on the mountains and generally in exposed locations. Depending on the wind, early temperatures will range from minus three to plus seven degrees, with daytime highs of five to twelve degrees.
Another warm front hits Austria on Friday
Another frontal system will reach Austria from the west on Friday. Clouds from a warm front will quickly move in, bringing rain at times on the northern side of the Alps and in the north, with the associated cold front arriving from the northwest in the evening. The South will remain favourable. The snow line will temporarily rise to 1,500 to 2,000 metres above sea level but drop significantly during the night. The wind will blow moderately from the west in some areas, with low winds in the south. Early temperatures: minus four to plus two degrees; daytime highs: five to nine degrees.
